I mostly try to read books or comics that I think will be worth my time. I also sometimes read books and comics that are totally crude and childish. Sometimes it’s just the ticket.

Alvin Schwartz is a children’s author who is best known for his Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series. You can find numerous blog posts about this much-loved series online, most dealing with the way in which it seemed far too scary for younger readers when Stephen Gammell’s surreal and unsettling illustrations are taken into account.
I have been a big fan of Soren Narnia’s Knifepoint Horror series for a while. I can’t quite remember how I discovered it, but as soon as I started to listen to the stories, I knew I’d found something extraordinary. It’s now one of my all-time favourite horror productions.
I found this collection of issues #1-4 of Ferrara’s Dead Rider on the Comics Plus: Library Edition page and immediately downloaded it. The story concerns the Dead Rider, a legendary undead cowboy who roams the old west in defiance of the country’s lawmen. Throughout the story, the Dead Rider battles a grotesque bog-witch who had previously cursed him with immortality. He seeks to finally destroy her and find peace.
